So that there be no division

I just wanted to be sure to leave no room for divisiveness with me reference to *** in my post about choosing the crossroads.

I gleen much wisdom and great tools and encouragement from *** Ministries, yet as with any ministry or pastor, teacher or site I may refer to on this blog, I take what I hear or learn from various teachings and check it against God's word and then seek the Spirit's application of His word to my own life.

So I just wanted to put that out there.

May we be like the Bereans, "Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so." (Acts 17:11)

And may we edify each other despite our differences, "Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another." (Romans 14:19)

  1. My sister in Christ,

    I am not familiar with the ministry you mention and I won't comment directly on them however I will say that I have blogged since 2004 on various blogs and I learned back then that even if I share something on one of my blogs as the Lord leads, I tend to not use the ministry name or individual names to protect them and reduce if not eliminate any confusion or division as that is never the intention but sadly can create that division because people may feel "attacked". Just sharing a thought with you. Stay encouraged.

  2. Thanks Lisa for your wise advice...you're right. I am going right now to eliminate the reference to the ministry I mentioned and am learning as I stumble and fall to share ONLY what the Lord leads and not anything more. Praying for discernment!

    Thanks so much!

  3. Your welcome my friend. We are all on the same journey to know Christ more, to live in and through Him and to share Him with others. We all slip, stumble and at times fall but we are here to help one another to stand up again in Jesus Name. Lovingly,

    Lisa
